Manager Alfons Groenendijk gave in an interview with with the NOS his current thoughts on the situation. ” I have always remained confident that we will stay up and we have a kind of relegation ghost following us.

“We are fighting with Willem II to avoid the relegation play-offs and Willem II have a better goal difference than what we do and in terms of fixtures they play Feyenoord and we play PEC Zwolle and then in the last game we are away to Cambuur and Willem II play at Roda JC so who knows what will happen ” .

” We hope that in 10 days time we have ensured our top flight status if that is not the case we will carry on for another two weeks ” . You cannot avoid being aware of potential relegation play-off opponents But we have full confidence that we will stay up directly without the need of relegation play-offs”.
